Nintendo has filed a lawsuit against the alleged operator of the popular console ROM sites and The sites are among the most notorious online hubs for pirated games, according to Nintendo, and face millions of dollars in potential damages.

Even ROM sites come in various flavours, from sites merely offering the ROM images for download without using any trademark imagery or logos, all the way up to sites like LoveROMS and LoveRETRO, which use in-browser emulators so you can play the games in question in your browser, all dressed up in trademarked logos ad imagery.

Little to say here - distributing ROMs is illegal, and while the damages Nintendo claims are clearly insane, there's no grey area here.
